everytime i turn on my amp it makes a loud popping noise, has massive hum which escilates intill completly warmed but still stays at about 2x volume of my guitar. it also dims the lights in my house, if i have it on for longer then 20 minutes i smell somthing burning coming from the amp.

the amp is a 1977 Fender Super Twin (Valve)

u just got to love fat strats.... and i really like the ones that hav 2 single pick upsm then the humbucker near the bridge... very nice =)
I don't really know much about amps, or that model. However, (and please don't get mad if I'm wrong), I think it might be the tubes in it, they prolly need replacing. If there are no tubes in it, then I have no idea.
hrm...hard to diagnose w/ just that info... take it to a tech and have them look it over.
